Color: Copper

Drank: Neat, in a glencairn.

Nose: Old oak, rye spices, caramel, vanilla, and a sort of aged bourbon smell

Finish: Medium warmth and long lasting, baking spices, oak, tobacco, leather, cinnamon, caramel, and dry sweetness.

Thoughts: I liked this much more than the Master’s Keep 17, I like the dry spice and oak flavor. Most older bourbons become too lopsided with oak, but I think having 10 year juice in here balances it out.

Score: 87 out of 100
